Shop the best organic, non-toxic, and planet friendly clothing brands, all in one place.
Daly City, CA – August 14, 2023 – Young Eden today announced the opening of its new sustainable fashion marketplace offering parents and families a wide selection of organic and nontoxic baby and toddler apparel from leading brands and independent designers, all in one place. Unlike traditional children’s apparel retailers, Young Eden exclusively sells stylish and affordable baby and toddler clothing made from the industry gold standard, GOTS certified organic cotton, as well as other eco-friendly materials.
Young Eden was created by two sisters and mompreneurs, Jessica and Julia Cooper, who want to simplify shopping for families seeking natural, nontoxic, and environmentally-friendly options of clothing for their babies and toddlers.
Explore thoughtfully curated collections of stylish and adorable eco-friendly kids clothes from brands including Burt’s Bees Baby, Colored Organics, Mightly, Norsu Organic, Under the Nile, Wee Gallery, and more. Shop for everything from baby bodysuits, bottoms, sleepers, and rompers to toddler shirts, pants, pajamas, hoodies and more outfits.
“We’re excited to introduce Young Eden for families everywhere as a new and modern alternative to harmful fast fashion retailers. Now you can simplify shopping for your favorite planet-friendly baby and toddler brands all in one place — explore stylish and adorable clothes you can actually feel good about buying,” said Jessica Cooper, founder and CEO at Young Eden.
Why to Shop Organic Clothes: The Fast Fashion Industry is Broken. Our Children and Planet are Paying the Price
According to a 2022 report by the Environmental Working Group, babies and kids are especially vulnerable to the toxic effects of “forever chemicals” known as perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs) — high levels of which appeared in the organization’s tests of popular baby textile products made with synthetic fabrics including onesies, swimwear, hats, raincoats, shoes, and more from brands like Old Navy, Carter’s, Cat & Jack, Disney, and others. In 2018, Harvard’s School of Public Health cited associated health effects of PFAs ranging across cancer, liver damage, decreased fertility, and increased risk of asthma and thyroid disease.
Fashion FWD, a non-profit organization dedicated to solving the need for nontoxic apparel also warns consumers to stay away from textile chemicals including phthalates, APEOS, and PFAs, writing on its website, “Phthalates are endocrine disruptors and these chemicals have been linked to ADHD, asthma, diabetes, and breast cancer, along with a number of reproductive issues. However, phthalates pose the greatest risk to children who may put their contaminated clothing in their mouths.”
Furthermore, the fast fashion industry produces a significant portion of harmful global greenhouse gas emissions contributing to today’s climate crisis. Leading global management firm McKinsey reports that fast fashion contributed 4 percent (or 2.1 billion metric tons) of global green-house gas emissions in 2018, while the United Nations reports the industry contributed about 10 percent. Emissions stem from garment production sourced from dirty fossil fuels like coal and crude oil, supply chain transportation emissions, and waste from discarded clothing sent to landfills. Additionally, chemical dyes added to synthetic fabrics harm our skin and contaminate our groundwater, and require high volumes of water consumption.
"If you’ve ever looked at the nutrition label on the food you buy, then you understand the importance of also knowing how and where your children’s clothes are sourced before you let it touch their skin," continued Cooper.
Slow fashion reduces the environmental impact of fashion by promoting the use of sustainable materials and processes, reducing waste, and supporting local production. Parents should be able to find the most natural, ethically sourced clothes for their little ones that they can feel good about buying--like GOTS certified organic cotton or other planet-friendly materials like recycled fabrics and nontoxic inks. Young Eden also offers sustainable, planet-friendly packaging to ship everything you buy.
It’s time to change how you shop for your kids’ clothes–make buying nontoxic and sustainable apparel a priority to raise a healthy child, while also leaving behind a healthier planet for future generations.
